    1. 1 1/2 stars rounded up to 2Marianne Arnet is looking forward to her Season in London. Most especially she can't wait to meet her correspondent, J. He enjoyed her published poetry so much, he felt the need to write to her and soon they became friends. Then Lord Whitestone dashes Marianne's dreams. He publicly declares that if she comes to London, her whole family will be snubbed. He can not in good faith accept the daughter of traitors. Marianne devises a scheme to so bewilder and beguile Lord Wh [...]


    2. For a historical romance written in the 80s it really doesn't get better. I was so shocked that I loved this story so much. It had undertones of Love and Friendship, the same lightness and humorous archetypal characters you love to hate and hate to love. At 176 pages it's an easy read, but a worthwhile one


    3. Clever and fun Really enjoyed this book. It would have been much better had some parts been drawn out more though, it was too short. Loved the bravery and schemes of our heroine. Loved the fun, happy side of our hero as well as his pigheaded side. The plot was superb. In no lifetime would I have come up with anything this awesome. Bravo. A fantastic read. So easily there could have been a whole series of books relating to these characters. Jane, Lucinda, Priscilla, and Miss Cane all could have h [...]


    4. I'm just a sucker for Regency period books with their manners, dress, and romance. This book isn't up to Georgette Heyer, but was still a very light and fun read. It had too many convenient twists and turns to be believable but was still a delightful read after the other books I have been reading lately, either trauma or heavy history.


    5. Marianne is a talented writer, and trying to keep the world from knowing who she is, and also carrying on a correspondence with Lord Whitestone, who is seeking revenge on the daughter of traitors responsible for killing many of his own men during the war. The dialogue is fast and witty. It is a great read, one I could hardly put down.


    6. Nice plotEnjoyed the plot and the fact that it was a clean read. The errors were distracting--periods in the middle of a sentence, a sentence stopping half way then continuing on the next line made the white space confusing. Otherwise, I may purchase more of Ms. Diamond's books.


    7. These plot twists, undaunted , creative, plausible, humorous, succinct, are food for this reader. Wish Columbus Metropolitan Library carried her books.


    8. I must have gotten this confused with a different book- I expected a lot more than a few kisses in this. It's somewhat clever, and yet the ending felt oddly unsatisfying.


    9. Fun, period romance with humor and action. I adored the main character as she was not the typical "girl" of the period.


    10. Great readThis book was a fast paced book full of intrigue, humor, and romance. I couldn’t put it down until it was finished


    11. From the back cover:"At first Marianne was thunderstruck; then a thundering rage overtook her senses. A certain Lord Whitestone was threatening to use her family's infamous past to keep the lovely young girl away from the upcoming London Season - and her own coming out.But it would take more than an arrogant young nobleman to keep Marianne Arnet, a published poet and girl of some spirit, out of sorts for long. If she were forbidden to move among the ton as Marianne Arnet, then, she vowed, she wo [...]


    12. A wonderful book to read on a rainy day! The plot, while rather quaint by today's sci-fi standards, is the kind you smile indulgently at but actually like. The heroine is much the same way-nearly as spunky as Elizabeth Bennet but not nearly as well-articulated or quick-witted, and wilts a bit too soon for a P&P lover when she meets the handsome hero. However, it is still an enjoyable book to read, and I definitely recommend it to old-fashioned-romance lovers.


    13. Recency SpiesRecency spying and mysterious identities keep a Marquis very confused about Lady Marianne who keeps turning up everywhere. Who is she? Read the book to unravel everyone's secrets. Nice different twist.
